Occasionally I will set myself a goal to work towards. If I have something to look forward to, it makes working a bit easier to swallow. It’s not always effective, but I think that’s my own fault. I rarely set myself a good reward. However, that changed when I was shopping yesterday. I ran into Fossil, and my friend who works there insisted I try on their new romper. Now, let me get something straight here. I have always hated rompers. I have thought them silly, unflattering pieces with no purpose. And then I tried this on. And fell in love. It sounds ridiculous, I admit, but it’s the truth.

So now, with that, I am going to reward myself with this romper when I finish a couple of projects. Firstly, my mother has two huge boxes full of pictures that need to be organized. And then there are the two kitchen pantry cupboards. Why is it that pantries get so cluttered? Whatever the reason, I am going to attack those shelves with all my organization skills. And then look at them in victory wearing my new romper…
